“Nice Oceanside Beachy Hotel”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you want a nice beach location right on the sandy shore of Dewey Beach than this is the spot for you. Enjoy the nightly warm cookies served at 8 PM and breakfast served from 8-10 AM. Lots to choose from and very nice spread for a small operation. All included in your stay price. Easy access to beach within just a few minutes, The staff and service was very friendly and helpful all the time. There is a small pool with 4 to 5 feet depths but no lifeguard. Great to cool off in and not crowded very often. Most everyone heads to the beach during the day and it is right outside your door. Rooms were decent and what you might expect for being at the beach. Nothing too exceptional but everything you need for your stay. Rooms were kept clean and were well maintained for beach location. If you are looking to be near all the main action in Dewey Beach, you are only a little walk away. No need to drive to well known restaurants and bars, all are just a few blocks away.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean side view, reserve early. We stayed on the west side and while we could not see...

Atlantic View Hotel is on the beach in Dewey which is great---Very nice people---got free beach chairs---but it falls short in the rooms as most people have explained are clean but they are dated and are in need of renovations especially at a beach location. Loved the warm cookies even though that is one thing we dont need in Dewey for there in many not so healthy food choices.

Room Tip: upper floors if you can walk the steps!!

This hotel is RIGHT on the beach. They are not exaggerating. You literally walk out the door and onto the sand. Additionally, they offer beach chairs free of charge to guests (amazing!). The hotel is also right around the corner from a bunch of the Dewey bars. We stayed here as a bachelorette group (seemed to be a popular bach party spot) and walked to 4-5 different bars throughout the weekend.

Warm cookies are served every night. I hear there is free wine during the off season. FREE BREAKFAST! What's not to love?!

Room Tip: We got the second floor ocean-facing rooms - they have nice balconies that overlook the beach.

This was my first trip to Dewey Beach and I'm so glad we chose this hotel! The location is perfect, waterfront and walking distance to all of the restaurants/bars in dewey. Its also a long walk or short drive to rehoboth. I like that you could borrow beach chairs from the hotel free of charge, we forgot ours at home. The pool is small but it serves its purpose. The continental breakfast each morning is fine, but the best part is the evening fresh baked warm cookies! The rooms were nice, and I would recommend an upper floor room on the waterfront, it was beautiful. Only downside were bugs, but I will take the blame for not closing the balcony door completely a few times. Luckily my boyfriend does not cry when he sees spiders the way I do....

Overall, staff was friendly, price was reasonable, location cant be beat and parking is included. I will return!

The Atlantic View is a real gem! We love Dewey Beach and just returned for the third time in four years to the Atlantic View. It is the perfect location to shopping, dining, fun and of course, the beautiful beach only footsteps away! It is a favorite vacation spot of ours and we will continue to come back!

Very clean and well kept hotel. The hotel staff do a great job at keeping the place in great shape! After visiting Rehoboth Beach, I would say that Dewey Beach is a much better option if you are looking for a quieter and more relaxing getaway. It is also great because the beach is only about a 200 foot walk away. Would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the ocean because the rooms on the west side of the hotel only have...

This hotel was clean and had a great complimentary breakfast. The beach location is fabulous, cute pool area, and not a far walk from the restaurants and bars. Will definitely be staying here again soon.
